Coming up — National Bunsen Burner Day

Prof. Bunsen Honeydew and BeakerNext Sunday is National Bunsen Burner Day — the celebration of German chemist Robert Wilhelm Eberhard von Bunsen’s birthday in 1811. He is the founder of the Bunsen Burner we all used in high school. This clip is from Muppet Labs, of course, where my favorite Bunsen is Muppet Doctor Bunsen Honeydew — who would not have his name without Robert Bunsen. That is Beaker on the left.

Even if you don’t like science, you must love the Muppets. Back to National Bunsen Burner Day – it even has its own Facebook page.

Enjoy the day and the Google doodle from last year — Bunsen’s 200th birthday.
